Crazy Love

Love has been described as blind. One old song and a movie popularized the notion that “Love is a Many-Splendored Thing”. Many say that love makes the world go round. But how many people will agree that love is crazy, specifically, that God’s love for us is crazy and that our love for Him should be zealous as well?

Author and pastor Francis Chan makes such bold declaration in his book titled Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God. CSM Publishing releases an unabridged audiobook version of Chan’s book in MP3 format. The audiobook is read by the author himself.

If you feel complacent, Chan will wake you up to the thought that we have an inaccurate view of God. He discusses man in relation to the greatness of God as reflected in the universe which He created. Because I find great pleasure in watching the sky at sunrise, sunset, and on starry nights, I was easily drawn to what Chan said. God is the wonderful Creator and He deserves to be the center of the universe. Chan calls us to admire and love God. He also leads us to discover what is wrong with our churches and with ourselves. He challenges us to look at the way we live in relation to God; then it’s up to us to change or stay the same. 

Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God Audio CD by Francis Chan is released by CSM Publishing and is available at their bookstore.
